Kirkland, WA. (November 2, 2001) – The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has gone "operational" with their Grant Award and Financial and Budget Management system that was modernized by The Software Revolution, Inc. After only seven (7) months, NEA's nearly 1,000,000-line legacy WANG-COBOL system, along with its associated databases and user and system interfaces, has been transformed into modern, platform-independent C++ and re-hosted on a distributed computing environment.

The Software Revolution, Inc. provides services for modernizing legacy software systems using highly automated tools. The modernization process uses artificial intelligence-based tools to assess the legacy system, transform it to modern languages and databases, re-factor the new code to make it more efficient, and provide the necessary instructions and interfaces to the web.

Major Milestone

"The Software Revolution, Inc.'s successful modernization of the NEA systems was not only proof positive of the efficacy of our automated transformation approach to system modernization, it was an important opportunity to demonstrate the company's broader capabilities to address all aspects of systems integration when the need arises" said Greg Tadlock, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Beyond the legacy code modernization, The Software Revolution, Inc. transformed nearly 350 database tables from a flat file to a relational database environment, while simultaneously recreating over 800 user screens. The Software Revolution, Inc. also performed extensive quality assurance testing with acceptance testing being performed by the NEA staff.

"TSRI has been great to work with. The code transformation went smoothly and quickly and we were impressed with the accuracy of the tool. The TSRI staff was also very responsive and quick to fix test issues." said Mike Burke, the NEA's Chief Information Officer.

2002 - Prestigious Northrop Grumman Award

 

"TSRI Wins Prestigious Northrop Grumman Award"

Kirkland, WA. (December 13, 2002) – Northrop Grumman has honored The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) with its prestigious "World Class Team Award" for outstanding support as a Northrop Grumman team member.

TSRI was recognized for its support to Northrop Grumman in the on-going modernization of the Air Force's Reliability & Maintenance Information System (REMIS). REMIS, a 3.1 million line-of-code COBOL-based system, was built to enhance the design of new Air Force weapon systems and to increase the readiness and sustainability of existing weapon systems by improving the availability, accuracy and flow of essential maintenance information.

Through the application of TSRI's highly automated and low-cost legacy system transformation and re-factoring processes, Northrop Grumman has successfully completed Increment 1 of the REMIS modernization project. Using TSRI's services, Increment 1 was completed far more rapidly and accurately, and at a far lower cost than could have been accomplished using traditional manual or semi-automated approaches.

Stanley Beckelman, TSRI's Chief Executive Officer said, "TSRI is honored to receive Northrop Grumman's "World Class Team Award." As a company that works closely with the system integration community, it is gratifying to be recognized as a valued team member by a key player like Northrop Grumman for such an important, and groundbreaking project".
